MHCP COLAB develops tools to implement great urban planning initiatives like streets designed for pedestrians first, temporary activation projects and a unique approach to community engagement + remote engagement.
These approaches add exponential value to cities. This practice advocates and builds support for these projects by developing relationships with communities, public agencies, businesses and property owners.
The firm has developed an online engagement platform which combines shared information with information exchange including community forums, surveys and live discussions. MHCP COLAB is currently completing a policy document and recommendations for four Pedestrian Priority in Little Havana to make the neighborhood safer for walking around local schools.
Other recent projects include policy recommendations for temporary activation projects in Downtown West Palm Beach, an urban analysis and public engagement strategy for the Wynwood Street Tree Master Plan, Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan for Gainesville Urbanized Area and a feasibility study for the City of Miami’s Bayside Wharf. We are a Miami Foundation Public Space Challenge for the Baywalk Pop-up, a temporary installation to connect the Baywalk trail along Downtown Miami’s waterfront.
